Icy roads can cause you to lose tire traction even more so than when driving a car in the rain, making them one of the top causes of car accidents. A number of drivers lose control of their cars and get into accidents when the roads are icy. Technology can help, but it will not solve all the problems of icy roads.
Please be careful on the roads! Never consume alcoholic beverages before driving. This is the most frequent cause of serious accidents. If you drink, use a non-drinking designated driver, a taxi, or sleep over.
